Alter 55 - Jaya Ballard, Task Mage

 This was the 2nd of the alters for Graham. Jaya Ballard has pretty tame artwork overall, and even though I realized there was some risk involved, I decided to push it in a direction that I personally like. I like bold earthy tones and decided to throw caution to the wind and make this how I would want it. I hope that Graham does too.


  1. I'm really liking these alters, Marshall :) If I were more confident in my ability to paint, I'd take a swing at it myself! Maybe I would start with ones I have dozens of copies of to get the hang of it, but I dunno. I really like the idea of doing that for commanders as I've recently gotten into the format, myself as well!

  2. I'd also like to add that the earthy tones were a great choice with this particular card - I've always been a fan of using different varied colors in this fashion (similar to how impressionist painters created their effects). Nice touch!

  3. Thanks Yoda, much appreciated!
